With the first season and spin-off under our belts, it’s time to review the second season and finally get this tournament over with. At least, that was my plan, but Saki Zenkoku-hen has its own plans…
Anime spinoffs aren’t a new thing, but for every Toaru Kagaku no Railgun and Fate/kaleid liner Prisma☆Illya, you have a Mahou Shoujo Lyrical Nanoha ViVid. Something that just fails to recapture the magic of its predecessor. Is Saki Achiga-hen: Episode of Side-A more the former or the latter? Let’s sort it all out~
A series that we’ve yet to get around to covering is Saki, but that ends today. Never before has mahjong been so gay, and with three seasons to get to (including the spin-off, Achiga-hen), there are several ships that set sail, so let’s get things started.
2009: Obama was sworn in as president, The King of Pop died, and yuri anime had its best year ever. Looking at the current slate of airing anime is usually a depressing affair that involves hoping and praying that a show will have something, anything for us to pin our yuri hopes to. More often than not, that results in disappointment and an early look towards what the next season might bring. But once upon a time, there was no need for any of that. Regardless of the season, there was a little something for every type of yuri fan~
Coming on the heels of our latest YuriReviews survey, we thought it would kind of be a cool idea for you guys to determine which anime we’ll be reviewing next here on YR. The ten choices listed in the poll at the bottom of the post include some classic series as well as some newer ones, but I think they’d all make for interesting reviews.
We’ve listed some quick info on the nominees, as well as some
questionable reasons why they should or shouldn’t be chosen. 😛
If what you’d prefer to read about isn’t listed, feel free to name your choice in the comments section~
Since my Yuri Anime List of 2013 kind of sucks, I decided to make a better one for 2014. Right now, I can of course only list the few shows with yuri or at least yuri subtext that are either airing right now or that are announced to air sometime this year. So this list will be updated whenever I see a new yuri show or hear about one from other people.
Still, since it’s just impossible for me to watch each and every anime that is airing, I’d also appreciate if you’d just tell me whenever you feel like something in my list is missing. Finally, I’d like to tell you that I’ll add a “Yuri Rating” to each and every show I’ll list. This will be my personal impression of how much yuri the show has to offer, so if I still haven’t watched the show that is listed, I’ll add this rating a little later. If you suggest a show, it is always appreciated if you could give the yuri rating a score from 1-10.
With that said, let’s move on to the list, and even if it’s just the beginning of 2014, it’s already quite huge~
This is the first time for me to pick up that many shows in a new season. I’m usually someone who finds and starts watching specific anime when they are already done airing.
I’ve picked up about 10 shows and after watching the first few episodes of each of them, I already know that I’m keeping a lot of them.
